Directors of Development: Influences on the Development of Children's Thinking

Synopsis

Generally speaking, books on cognitive development either focus on internal mechanisms without giving much attention or credence to the external world, or emphasize a contextual approach without considering genetic and other biological factors. This unique volume considers influences from within and from outside the child and seeks to address how these influences interact -- both with the child and with each other -- to direct the development of children's thinking. The chapters include research on biological factors, on family and cultural influences, and on specific intervention programs that affect this development. Top researchers present a diversity of views in their up-to-date syntheses of recent anthropological, educational, medical, psychological, and sociological findings.
